Family Medicine Faculty Information

The NOSM Postgraduate Family Medicine (PGFM) program has evolved the curriculum to align with the goals of the Triple C Competency-Based Curriculum (Triple C).  The central concepts of the Triple C that family medicine residency training should be “comprehensive, focused on continuity, and centred in family medicine” (Tannenbaum, Kerr, Konkin, Organek, Parsons, Saucier, Shaw, & Walsh, 2011).  As such, the NOSM PGFM has implemented changes such as:

  • an outcomes-based organization of clinical curriculum;
  • site-specific approach to scheduling clinical experiences; and,
  • revisions to the resident assessment process.
